It is a common practice for news agencies to sensationalize and indulge in yellow journalism. Bollywood’s superstar Shahrukh Khan in particular has been the target of many entertainment platforms or news agencies who have been writing good and bad about him.
The actor has registered consecutive flops at the domestic market in the form of Zero, Dilwale and others which has landed him in a lot of criticism and made him the vulnerable target of news agencies. It is also not uncommon to see various speculations floating regarding SRk. Shahrukh Khan recently opened up about Zero’s failure.
Talking to a Chinese website CGTN, the actor took responsibility of the film’s failure. He said, ‘Unfortunately Zero itself wasn’t received too well back home in India, maybe I made the wrong film, maybe I did not do the right storytelling so I am a little wary how it will be received here and I hope people here will like it”
However, leading Indian Publication Bollywood Hungama has reported that Shahrukh Khan blames the ace director Aanand L Rai for the film’s fiasco.
They reported, “Apparently the duo which couldn’t stop singing each other’s praise and had sworn to work together on various projects (including, apparently, believe it or not, a sequel to Zero) have called off their future partnership plans. All of it.”
Claiming that Shahrukh Khan does not want to see Aanand Rai’s face is very harsh and highly unlikely. The actor previously took the responsibility of Zero’s fiasco upon his shoulders already as he said, “Maybe I made the wrong film, maybe I did not do the right storytelling” To claim otherwise seems to be irresponsible journalism on Bollywood Hungama’s end.
Shahrukh Khan has been a superstar throughout his career and the King Khan is surely going to make a remarkable come back sooner or later.
